    Thanks, but I took the physical in late 2008 or early 2009. I took my exam (45-722) in 2005. I was supposed to get into the academy on Jan 6, 2011 but the class was indefinitely postponed due to uncertainties with the states budget.

      Is anyone else going in for their physical ability test on the 2nd of Feb?

      Only slightly bigger than the 50 point circle on a dart board.

        50 point circle is the green one or the inner red bullseye?

            I noticed in the pictures that the people showing the hand steadiness test are only using one hand to hold their weapon. I always use two when shooting... are you allowed to use both hands as you would in a normal situation?

              You only use one, your dominant arm. It doesn't make sense to me either. I'm sure when they teach you how to shoot in the academy it's required that you use two hands to hold your firearm.

                    I just realized I don't know how long they ask you to keep your hand steady for... I thought I had read five minutes somewhere but apparently not, lol. Can you enlighten me?

                    I'm going for NYC. I wonder how many people will be at this thing.

                        As far as the hand bike it's the second one on the list you can click on the picture to make it bigger. If they follow the steps listed on the website the arm steadiness test is done next to last.
                        Hey Krull,

                        My rank is 42xx, so we are about 800 apart in rank ... I hope we get a shot at this job ... what's your feeling on that, do you think we have a decent chance ? I picked all of the downstate locations plus 4 J.D.'s upstate for location preferences ... hopefully that helps ... best of luck to you ...

                        • I have 2 questions about the Agility Test : 1) How many sit ups are required in the 1 minute allotted time ?
                          2) How long do you have to keep your hand steady for the steadiness test ?

                          Thanks : )

                            Arm-Hand Steadiness - 30 Seconds

                            Sit-Ups - Max amount in 1 minute - No one knows. As they will tell you before your take the test, all of your scores are put into a computer and a program figures it all out and determines if you pass or not.

                            There isn't a lot of space to take the test, so I would imagine it would be like last time, only about 50 people. It took about 4-5 hours, with 1-2 hours of that being paperwork and listening.

                            • Army standards (age 27-31) are 2 minutes and with a minimum passing score of 60 which is just 45 sit-ups in 2 minutes. Even if it is 33% more for the shorter duration, doing 1 sit-up per second or 60 in 1 minute should suffice.

                              I would assume that the courts are not as stringent as the military, however using the military as a guide is what I am doing.

                                If I have to do 60 in one minute I'm screwed, lol.
